Your home is exposed to the elements day in and day out. From extreme heat and cold and everything in between, your home needs all the weather protection it can get to keep it sturdy, safe and as energy-efficient as possible. Fortunately, increasing your home’s weather protection is fairly simple as long as you know what to do.
In this post, we discuss several projects that will improve your home’s weather protection.
Siding is the superior exterior protection. Unlike wall paint, it doesn’t require reapplication and lasts longer too. Siding also doubles as a secondary weather barrier for your walls, protecting your home from heat exposure and storms. Vinyl siding, on top of increasing your home’s weather protection, also comes in insulated variants that improve your home’s energy efficiency and comfort.
Replace Old Windows
Windows that are old and in disrepair are weather risks. Their compromised stability and security makes them more prone to wind and storm damage, and the fact that they shrink with age means they develop more drafts and air leaks over time.
If your windows are near the end of their service life, we recommend replacing them promptly. This will not only boost your home’s weather protection; it will also increase your home’s curb appeal and value.
Install Gutter Guards
You should also consider installing gutter guards. These protection systems keep twigs, leaves and other debris from clogging your gutters, which can lead to serious water damage. Apart from increasing your home’s protection from rain and storms, gutter guards also reduce the amount of gutter cleaning you need to do every year.
